    @Allie Pallie thanks for the info, I'm afraid I'm not creative enough, the arty part of me was lost somewhere I think! I am currently dabbling in a bit of writing which I thought I'd enjoy but I'm not so sure I'm good at that either. I swear I'm having a mid life crisis or something!

    @suemp thanks I'll have a look at Curtin. I was even thinking of just doing a medical terminology course to get that behind me in the hope that the rest of my skills with that added would be enough.

    I sympathsize with you. I have to look at non physical type work now because having Fibromyalgia I can't do what I'd like ie childcare or teacher aide. I would've love to be a midwife but that is too much on my feet.
    So now I'm trying to work out where I want to go. So far I know I want to help people somehow so social work or similar. But not sure what area and if I should do a diploma course or go straight to Uni.

    I think that's part of my problem too @purpleButterly4, with my health and being so tired all the time I'm not keen to go full time back into study but I need to change direction. I think I was sick for so long that I was just happy to be able to work and do things but now that I feel a little bit better I want to stretch myself and my brain and make a difference somehow - not even a different to other people but to myself and really feel like I am doing something, even if just for me.

    I would go and see a life coach. They'll help you narrow down your options. Better yet, become a life coach! Haha.

    An appointment with a life coach or career counsellor might be useful?

    Also there are short courses in allied health assistants or physiotherapy assistants that can get you into a rewarding hospital job in 6 months?

    Ha ha snap to Acadaca!

    Oten offers a certificate 3 in business admin. (Medical). It's an easy, short course that might help you get into a job in the area you want.
    The medical terminology unit you do can go towards credit for a medical coding course you can do which might be of interest?
